We're back with our 2nd HouseCall of the weekend!
Here are today's community questions:
Jeni: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a question regarding two of my boys. One is sixteen years old, the other is 7. Both suffer from super dry, cracked hands. They play with basketballs and footballs regularly, which seems to make their fingers spit and crack even more. It is extremely painful for them. Is there anything I can try that is natural, or anything I should be looking out for? We have tried them sleeping with cotton gloves with different things on their hands. That doesn't seem to help at all. Their doctors have prescribed steroid cream which I am against, but, again have tried. That didn't even touch the problem so after two weeks we stopped that. Any suggestions would be helpful!
Deb: Over the years I have exercised, danced and ran up and down stairs caring for my family. I have gardened or purchased most of our plant based foods from local farms. But now at age 63, I have experienced trouble with my right knee for about 3 years which flairs up whenever I used the steps, stand to long washing dishes or sit to long watching TV. When I get up in the morning so my knee hasn't been supporting weight, all is well until I use the steps. I am now about 30 lbs over weight and know that if I could lose the extra weight it will probably help but am limited as to what I can do. What could you suggest?
Ray S: I saw that you are giving away free bottles of vitamin this month and i know I should be taking it. Could you tell much how much though? Does it matter my age or weight? Does it matter what kind?
Andrew C: Thank you for all you do. I’m a long time listener, but just writing in for the first time… My question is that I am a profuse sweater and can’t seem to control it. I sweat through my shirt everyday and if I exercise I leave a pool of sweat wherever I am. Is this genetic and can I do anything about it? Thanks for your help!
Thank you for submitting your questions this week and I hope you enjoyed the Q&A and all the tips along the way!
